AAP MLA Somnath Bharti Granted Bail In Domestic Violence Case

New Delhi, October 7: In a major relief to the former Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti, a local court on Wednesday granted him bail in connection with a domestic violence case filed by his wife Lipika Mitra. 

The Dwarka court allowed bail to the Malviya Nagar MLA after a security of Rs 1 lakh.

Bharti had moved the bail plea after the Supreme Court had disposed of his anticipatory bail plea and asked him to approach the trial court for regular bail.

His estranged wife had told the apex court that she was not willing for mediation to settle the domestic violence and attempt to murder case. Bharti is in judicial custody till October 19.

The AAP MLA was arrested in the wee hours on September 29 after the apex court ordered him to surrender.

Bharti had on September 23 moved the apex court seeking protection from arrest in the case and a direction to restrain the police from arresting him till his plea challenging the High Court order was decided.

The Supreme Court, however, had on October 1 denied interim bail to AAP MLA and sought the presence of his wife before it to explore the possibility of mediation.

On September 22, the Delhi High Court had rejected Bharti's plea for anticipatory bail, observing that the allegations against him were backed by "documentary proof".
